OPI Coca Cola Collection – the two oranges - swatches


I gave most of OPI’s Coca Cola Collection a miss. Most of you have probably seen them all by now, but here’s what the entire collection looks like:



I only bought the two oranges. “Two oranges?”, I hear you think, “but there was only one orange in the collection!” That’s almost true, but only almost.

Here are the two oranges I bought:


The orange crème is called Orange You Stylish! and the orange glitter is called Orange You Fantastic!


Orange You Fantastic was made for the US market. It wasn’t displayed here so I had to swap my way to the bottle I’ve got. It’s an orange jelly packed with orange and golden glitters. It builds up nicely in two coats, but I decided to wear three coats, just to make sure that there were no thinner spots. Here’s what Orange You Fantastic looks like in the sun; 3 coats:


I think it’s an amazing glitter!


One last shot:


Orange You Stylish was made for the European market and hasn’t been displayed in the US as far as I know (please do correct me if I’m wrong!) It’s an orange crème. The formula is good, and it covers in two coats. I wear three coats on these pictures, but no topcoat.

Three coats, no topcoat:


This is an orange that dries up much nicer on the nails – it’s looking clearer (or less dusty) than it does in the bottle.


I actually quite like this!


Here are a couple of bonus shots for you: Orange You Stylish with a reversed glitter gradient of Orange You Fantastic:


The two polishes look great together imo!


Why OPI decided to release two so different polishes on the two markets is a mystery to me. I am glad I’ve got both versions though, because I think it’s a curiosity that they made two.

So, did you know that there were two versions of orange in OPI’s Coca Cola collection? Which one do you prefer? Would you also have bought both?

  3. Lovely gradient! The glitter itself reminds me slightly of Wibo, Rio, nr 3 if I'm right about the number, but it's nicer.

  11. Orange isn't my favorite polish color but over the summer I added a handful of them to my collection. It's definitely a fun color to have. Both of these ones are gorgeous! I would totally wear them myself.

    1. It is funny how a "new" colour can suddenly sneak into a collection. I love most of the oranges I found :)
